The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 193 (8.21.2021)

playlist - mixtape

Good morning and welcome to another Saturday morning mixtape. We’re full to bursting with a bunch of new singles this week, including tracks from two new Gilead Media releases, Succumb, Every Time I Die, and…god this is hard to even type…an Archspire song I really, actually like. I know, it surprised me too. Check all that and more out below.

CANTO: Waldgeflüster, Rotting Christ, Cradle of Filth, and More

Oh good, the start of another fucking work week.

  • One of my favorite black metal projects, Waldgeflüster, are releasing their sixth album on September 24th. Dahoam will be out through AOP Records, and you can check out the lyric video for the first single, “Im Ebersberger Forst”, right here.
  • Rotting Christ are reissuing Der Perfekte Traum on vinyl, an EP originally released back in 1999. It will be available on September 3rd, with a couple different variants, exclusively through Vinylstore.gr.
  • Cradle of Filth have announced a special Halloween show, which will take place at The Roundhouse in London. It’ll serve as the album release show for Existence Is Futile, which drops on the 22nd through Nuclear Blast. And a memorable release show I’m sure it will be.
  • I can’t tell if this is old news or not, so I’m throwing it in anyway. Underoath have announced a 2022 North American headlining tour with support from Every Time I Die and Spiritbox. That run of shows kicks off February 18th in Dallas, and runs through March 25th in Atlanta.
  • And we’ll close with some more black metal. This is the incredibly entertaining new music video from Furze for “Black Psych Tormentor”. That’s the title-track from a new album, set for an October 22nd release.

The Nine Circles Playlist Vol. 159 (12.12.2020)

playlist - mixtape

What a week. There’s so much behind that, I can’t even. But, it’s Saturday now and time to put that in the rearview. It’s also time for our weekly mixtape (playlist for you young bucks) of tunes we’ve been jamming ’round the back office. Corey drops some classic Emperor and a long cut from Unreqvited, Ian brings a Deeds tribute track from Defeated Sanity and a banger from Dying Fetus, Zyklonius offers up a Cult of Luna track, Vince has a new ERR + Thou cut, Angela goes in varying directions with SEA and Russian Circles, and I drop the new ones from Eyehategod, Every Time I Die and Grave Gnosis. All that and a ton more is hiding right under that play button below so hit that and do whatever you do on a Saturday. See you back here soon.

CANTO: Every Time I Die, Lesser Glow, …and Oceans, and More

Quiet day everywhere except in my mind.

  • It seems as though Every Time I Die has teased about half a minute of new music. If anyone has managed to form an opinion off of those brief seconds, the floor is all yours!
  • Not the most surprising thing, but Rocklahoma 2020 has been canceled. The event, scheduled for Memorial Day weekend, made the announcement yesterday. Five Finger Death Punch, Slipknot, and Staind were the planned headliners.
  • Lesser Glow have a new album dropping on May 29th through Pelagic Records called Nullity. A track titled “The Great Imitator” is streaming now, and a pre-order link is available for you to take advantage of.
  • We’ll close with a new music video from …and Oceans for the track “Five of Swords”. Their next album, Cosmic World Mother, drops on May 8th through Season of Mist.
